Quoll Cowl is a textured cowl that has a secret… It has pockets!! The pattern is super fun and keeps your interest yet is still easy enough to work on while watching TV or at a knit night!

Directions are written to allow some freedom for you to truly make Quoll cowl your own! Included are optional directions to add a button closure in case you would like the pockets to be more secure.

Finished Dimensions
11.25” 28.6cm wide x 39” 99.1cm circumference
Sizing Note: It is this designer’s habit to have extra yarn remaining when working a design, even in a pattern such as this one, where it is easy to use up yarn in full.

The sample cowl is not quite long enough to loop around twice, however 26g or approximately 96yds 88m of leftovers remained in total. If you would like to lengthen your cowl or not have leftovers, it is recommended to use up your mini skeins in full.

When you run out of one, join the next one and continue in pattern (leaving tail long enough to weave in).

Suggestions for alternate lengths: 26-28” 66-71cm for a shorter, single loop cowl. 44-48” 112-122cm for a longer, double loop cowl.
